Inspired by depression-era folk songs, Emmy-award-winning filmmaker Shelley Saywell and Juno-award-winning musician Lorraine Segato set out to document the music and stories of those who live on the margins of society and bare their souls through their songs on the streets of Toronto.
Segato began this project when she did a benefit concert for homeless relief and discovered amazing talent on the streets of Toronto. Watch the documentary below to go on a journey along abandoned tracks, beneath bridges, inside shelters, rooming houses and alleyways, to celebrate the music and survival of those who live on the outside.
